The gates of Central Secretariat were also closed but interchange facility was available for passengers. Other stations which are closed are: Jasola Vihar Shaheen Bagh, Lal Quila, Vishwa Vidyalaya.

Sources said the entry and exit gates were closed so that people going to protest venues could be dissuaded.
